“Perfect amount of spice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

I like my Thai food spicy but not too spicy, and Lemongrass got it just right. I've had too many experiences where I've chosen a dish that the restaurant claims is two chili peppers (on a scale of three), only to receive a dish with almost no spice at all. At Lemongrass, my basil chicken was perfect. Spicy and still flavorful and tasty. It was perfect for a quick dinner.

“Second time as good as the first!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Last night was the second time I have eaten there and it was excellent once again. I had the Pad Kee Mao (Drunken Noodles) with tofu and it was wonderful. The tofu was done correctly and seasoned to perfection. We also had the fried calamari and it, too, was great: small pieces, tender and crispy. The service was good, but not intrusive and the food came at just the right time. They have been open many years, and for good reason!

“Wonderful Thai”

I enjoyed a nice meal with my son-in-law and a friend in a fine setting. The plate had nice, consistent heat, wonderful flavors.

“Interesting and Tasty Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

We started off with the Basil Spring Rolls (in rice wrap) - Delicious!! Full of flavor - great sauce with it. We also tried the regular fried Spring Rolls - good, but the Basil ones are better. We also had the chicken fried rice - very good. Attentive service.

“Get the Vegetarian Massaman!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Fresh, carefully made. Great variety on the menu, especially vegetarian options! Accommodating and attentive service. Atmosphere is not fussy or frou-frou, yet it's still nicer than your average family Asian/Chinese place.
